New York auto dealer bond

Auto dealership bonds in New York

From March 28, 2017 all New York State auto dealerships will need to have an auto dealer bond. These bonds are a type of license surety bond that provide a guarantee that an auto dealership will abide by state regulations. This provides a guarantee for consumers and ensures that there is a level of financial protection for them should the dealership break the terms of a car sale agreement.

New & used New York auto dealer bond

The new auto bond regulations have changed the amount of bond coverage that is required of new and used car dealers in New York. The new rules split the dealerships into two tier levels: those who sell less than 50 cars per year, and those that sell more than 50 cars per calendar year. The dealerships in the lower tier will need a bond of $20,000. The auto dealers in the higher tier will need to purchase a $100,000 bond.
